The 1st day of the Early Access Program (EAP) opened up yesterday for the new gTLD’s .Auto, .Car and .Cars with day 1 prices set at $59,049.99 for each domain name at Godaddy and there appears to have been some takers at that price.
NEXTEV USA, Inc registered the domain names on January 12th:
NEXTEV USA seems to be the US operations of a Planned Chinese car manufacture who is looking to produce cars to compete with Telsa.
Both domain names were registered at Godaddy where the 1st day EAP price for a registration is $59,049.99.
We can only assume that We Car might be the name of the first vehicle planned to be produced by NextEV.
Other registrations that show a creation date of January 12th, the first day of EAP include brand domains that could have been registered in Sunrise:
Those domain names were registered at Hexonet.
Lamborghini is owned by Audi.
It appears Audi passed on its chance to register it’s .Auto, .Car and .Cars in Sunrise as well, as of publication those domains remain unregistered.
.Auto, .Car and .Cars are jointly owned by Uniregistry and XYZ.
Day 2 of EAP opens later today and the price at Godaddy drops to $34,049.99
